What is a G64 file?

G64 1541 Disk Image
Known as C64 emulator disk image files, these .g64 files contain disk images that are created from diskettes of the 8-bit Commodore 64 computers. The disk images stored in these G64 files can be mounted as virtual drives in Commdore 64 emulators, enabling you to run the old c64 software on your modern PC. You can use the Vice C64 emulator program to open and run the Commodore 64 programs and games stored in these .g64 files.
The G64 format is similar to the D64 format, but it supports program features that use the 1541 disk drive in a non-standard way, e.g., fast-loaders and copy-protections.
